Red Deer River Camping Weekend Class 2/3 (July 17, 18, 2021)
Welcome to the Upper Red Deer River, one of the best class 2 to 4 rivers out there, and certainly one of the best for instruction. Join myself for two days of instruction and camping as we head west of Sundre for our weekend paddling destination. Gooseberry Ledge, Jimbo's Staircase, S Bend Waves, Double Ledge, are just some of the features we will get to enjoy on this pool and drop style of river. Our camping will be riverside, in one of the many random camping spots along the river.
For the July 17/18 class 2/3 weekend you must have some confidence paddling class 2 with some exposure to class 3.
I will be camping Friday night at our pre determined location and you are welcome to join, or you can meet up with the group Saturday morning for 9:00 am again at our set location. You are responsible for your weekend food and camping gear.
Every person must have appropriate personal wear/safety gear including a throw bag, whistle, and a river runner/creek boat with float bags.
